In an app I am working on I need to update a column in a Microsoft SQL Server database table with a PDF file.

I am using the Microsoft SQL Server ODBC connection.

The table (ISPDF02) has a column called ISPDF which is of data type IMAGE and a CHAR column ISNAME which is a primary key.

This app is running in PB11.5. The pbodb115.ini file has PBMAXBLOBSIZE=2147483647 and PBMAXTEXTSIZE=2147483647,

The PDF file is read into a blob variable lb_blob.

On executing: updateblob ispdf02 set ispdf02.ispdf = :lb_blob where ispdf02.isname = :ls_name using mytr;

This works fine EXCEPT I get this error whenever the size of lb_blob is greater than approx 409,000 bytes:

Error updating ISPDF02.ISPDF SQLSTATE = S1010 [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Function sequence error

Any ideas? Suggestions? I read that IMAGE is deprecated. I get the same result with VARBINARY(max).

Hi Larry;

   Does it work if you add this into the DBParm field of your Transaction Object vs relying on the PBODB115.ini file setting?

For example ....

  • SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='DSN=SS;UID=Chris;PWD=<******>;PBMaxBlobSize=1000000',Async=1,DBGetTime=5,ConnectOption='SQL_DRIVER_CONNECT,SQL_DRIVER_NOPROMPT',PacketSize=2048"


Regards ... Chris
